Lego Dice

Gotta say, ever since I saw the Lego Games line, I've been captivated by the prospect of little build able Lego Dice. So, of course, I found some on Bricklink for super cheap. Haven't ordered yet. It's on the ole "eventual" todo list. I'm curious, though. What are your thoughts on Lego Dice and their seemingly natural fit in Brikwars?

Awesome idea, but I wouldn't buy board games just to amass a handful of them. Make a dice set, with approriate d6 tiles, and all my money.

They would be great for brikwars because you could change the tiles out to make Funny Dice.

I have some. I like them. But I will not replace my other dice with them. I just like them beause they are changable. As Solvess said, you can add things to the die to make special die rolls, like one side says the nuke goes off.......

if you cut off the rubber shit, you end up with something that is both really cool looking and pretty useful. its really really difficult to cut off though, so make sure you have a good knife if you do it.

The board games have nice parts in general. The dice are just a bonus.

I really like the idea of being able to assemble special purpose dice as required for unusual rule situations.

I got one in a trade a few months ago, but not for use as a dice I still messing around with using it to build.

Now that's what I call getting fucked by the dice! Lego dice sound like fun, but I already have special-effect dice so I won't end up buying them, I don't have that kind of money.
